Travellers move on to land near Palmer’s College

THE SUMMER of cat and mouse between travellers and the authorities continues as travellers have moved to land close to Palmer’s College in Grays.

YT readers contacted us just after 4pm with pictures that show a number of caravans, cars and tents encamped on land close to the sixth form college between Grays and Chadwell St Mary.

This may be the camp that were living on Blackshots Fields.

Here is an update on recent encampments on the Thurrock Council website.
